A little over a month ago, I did a video over on the SlamDunk Success YouTube Channel about Stoicism. I had listened to a book about the topic on my Chirp app, and it was intriguing. It also provided a variety of ideas for me to talk about on video, in blog posts, and here on the podcast.

Today's quote comes from Lucius Seneca, a Roman philosopher and writer who was one of the early voices of Stoicism. The quote is not  about St...

This might be the most important quote I've ever done on the show. Okay, that's probably a stretch and a bit of hyperbole, but I'm not sure that it is. It's also not meant to discredit all the great quotes that I have talked about or that our guests have talked about.

Today I interview veteran youth hockey coach, Karl Norton. Karl talks about a great quote by sports psychologist, Dr. Jerry Lynch - "Your influence is never neutral."

We have a great discussion on the quote, and we explore a variety of topics that it led to, the biggie being the value of a "games-approach" to practice vs. a "drills-approach." I really enjoyed the discussion and all that I learned from Karl, a...

This week we continue Season 3 with another episode where I will be talking about an impactful quote. This is  Part 2 of a 2-part episode that I began last week.

This week's quote carries on the concept of getting more improvement in the areas w...

The quote came from his Hall of Fame induction speech, and it spoke to a concept that many of us deal with in some fashion from time-to-time.
